DS is 4 and he gets filtered tap water 95% of the time. He gets 2% milk twice a day and as a treat he gets juice or tea once a week.
DD is 18 months and she gets water throughout the day and whole milk once or twice a day.
I'm suprised how many people give their kids juice/ tea/ koolaid to drink on a daily basis.
Water and milk
they are 5 yo and 23 months
Daughter is 4 1/2 and she drinks skim milk, 1% milk, water and different juices that are either straight or watered-down. She needs juice to keep the poopies manageable. I'm anti-juice, so I wish this wasn't how it is.
My 3 yr old gets milk with breakfast and dinner, 1/2 water, 1/2 juice for lunch, and water in between meals..I believe the water has fluoride in it? idk really lol
My DS is 2.5yo, usually ice water, bottled with no fluoride if possible but often from the tap. He also gets 1-2 cups of juice and sometimes a cup of milk. Very rarely soda, he's very sensitive to HFCS and artificial dyes. So usually if it's not water it's 100% juice with no dyes, HFCS or added sugar, and watered down so it's 1/2 juice and 1/2 water
Quoting fuqq~this~place:" The pedi gave me a script for fluoride drops for my 9 month old :roll: okay so on a tube of toothpaste ... [snip!] ... is allowed is swallowed........Hitler used fluoride to kill butt loads......but they want me to put it in my 9 month old ???"
Our pedi with my oldest did the same...we threw the script away lol. A lot of the pediatricians that arent "up on the times" will still push fluoride. We choose not to.
Each of my kids get two things of 100% apple juice a day. Michael gets a small kids cup full and Seth gets a sippy cup that's halfway diluted with water. After that, Seth gets a sippy of milk and a sippy of water later and Michael gets a choice of milk or water, although he almost ALWAYS chooses water for the rest of the day.
As for the fluoride, I have no idea. It's just city sink water (Seth's is boiled).
